## Quantified modal logic and possible world semantics: a uniform approachQuantified modal logic and possible world semantics: a uniform approach. The main theme of quantified modal logic is the interplay between modalities (alethic, temporal, etc) and quantification. Combining expressions like "it is possible that", "it is... |

## Program Explanation ExplainedMy presentation will have two parts. In the first part I will present the main ideas of an account of causal explanation that I have developed in my Ph.D. thesis Understanding Interests and Causal Explanation. My model basically combines three ideas: 1) an explanation is an... |

## Synthetic Tableaux for the Paraconsistent Logic CLuNSynthetic tableaux method (STM) is a semantically-motivated proof and model-seeking method which, on the contrary to the Beth-like tableaux, is based on a direct reasoning. In case of finite-valued extensional propositional logics (as Classical Propositional Calculus or... |

## From Behaviorism to Dispositional Explanations of BehaviorThe aim of this paper is to present a dispositional model for the explanation of behavior. This model, we contend, suggests a viable method which, like the method of behaviorism, seeks to uncover relations between behavior and the environment, but manages to avoid a... |

## Remote Causes, Bad Explanations?The historian Paul Veyne (1984) expresses an idea that exists in many social scientists' minds: "For a historical explanation to be admissible, it must not present any interruption of continuity in causal relations that connect the agents involved in the plot.... |

## Is there an alternative to alternative history?Apart from being an extremely popular genre of science fiction literature, professional historians too describe and discuss alternative histories. In such an uchronia, one conjectures what would have happened if one or more past events happened otherwise. Although many... |

## 4th Flemish-Polish Workshop on the Ontological Foundations of ParaconsistencyThe aim of the project is to elaborate the foundations of paraconsistency, both from a logical and an epistemological point of view. With the advent of paraconsistent logics and inconsistent mathematical systems, there is a strong need to embed these in a broader framework... |
